With runners on first and second in the bottom of the fifth inning, Marlins second baseman Xavier Edwards placed a routine sacrifice bunt down the third base line.
However, Lucchesi inexplicably threw the ball to uncovered base easily allowing Berti to score from second, giving the Marlins a 2–1 lead.

Fans on social media were absolutely relentless on yet another mind-boggling error by the Mets this season.
